Vauxhall Zafira Fires Panic, Issues Second Recall Whilst Owners Wait for InspectionsConsumerWatch / Auto Sector May 19, 2016 - 03:23 PM GMT
Vauxhall appears to be in a panic as the first recall of about 220,000 Zafira B's in the UK of November 2015 does not appear to have fixed the fault that is causing Zafira's to catch fire and literally explode, and so Vauxhall today issued a SECOND recall in an attempt to get a grip of the crisis.
My video of November 2015 covered the key issue centered around the faulty Fan Motor Resistor -
Whilst Vauxhall is busy issuing a second recall, many if not most Zafira B owners are still waiting for the first recalls inspection to be done! For there is a fundamental flaw in Vauxhall's recall process and that is its DEALERSHIPS who whilst tasked with making the 'urgent' inspections and repairs are flat out FAILING to do so in a timely manner! So whilst Vauxhall panics and keeps sending out reminders to Vauxhall owners to get their vehicles checked, the dealers are taking a far more relaxed attitude as my following new video illustrates the real experience of being kept waiting for an inspection that is now into its 6th month! And this despite informing the Vauxhall dealer that the heater was already faulty!
So what's the point of issuing a second recall if vauxhall's dealerships are not able to handle the first recall? Ensure you subscribe to our youtube channel to find out if the inspection materialises before our Zafira catches fire!
